Ok, so i finished this 2 days ago but I was too busy to upload it. It's a Finder Background for your HOME folder.
Only 3 shelves which means that this background holds up to 12 elements (I think it's more than enough for a Home folder). Check out the note for instructions (Inspired by the art of the great artist Jan Martin)
So this is a very quick skin for CoverGloobus i ported from bowtie. I was looking for something like that. CoverGloobus includes a corner skin when you first install it but it looks really bad so i decided to port this one that looks pretty neat! .
Inside the .zip you'll find 2 versions: One for the upper left corner and the other one for the lower left corner.
So I'm done with finals! And so with the semester! First thing I did when I got home was fire up Photoshop and play a little bit with it. I changed the note and added a lotta glow and sparkles just for fun Not quite sure yet. We'll see, I'm creatively out of shape right now It's been like a week without touching PS. Suggestions as always will help.
Don't forget that you can follow me on Twitter for more previews and screenshots... or other interesting things I come across surfing the www.
A little something I was playing with this morning. I am thinking that I could use this on my desktop to display time and date with the use of Geektool
IT'S NOW AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD
Make sure you set up both images (inside the zip you will find the clock and the reflection png files) at 400x300 px on Geektool and play with the font and sizes until it fits. I personally used Lucida Grande at 96px for the hours and minutes and 24 px (I think) for the date (except for the month wich is 12 px if I remember well).
It's also important you add the elements in this order: clock first, then information with the right commands and finally the reflection image (which is is better with only 45 or 50% of opacity).
So i found a very nice icon here [link] by Kyo-tux and i loved it. I tried to use it as a Finder icon but it wouldn't complete the whole idea of it so i edited it to make it look like my Finder's shelf background and i was quite happy with the results. You can take a peek here [link]
All credits go to the original artist since this is only a mod . Yet i hope you like it. The icon is in .png format so it's available for Mac (since Candybar can handle this format) and Linux users (You gotta love Linux )
